Hearing the chimes (aka Sam’s on vacation)

You know, I’ve heard more than one dealer tell me that the only reason people keep their home security systems operational is for the chimes that sound when the doors open. I can now attest that is the only reason the in-laws we’re staying with here in Ohio keep their system up and running. They never arm it, they don’t even know who monitors it (not sure if they even pay that bill, actually), but they love the chimes. The kids come and go as they please and they keep a mental tally by the chimes. Hilarious.

<p>You didn&rsquo;t know? The chime tones are like kryptonite to intruders, i am doing a study right now for Rutgers. This will turn the central station business on its ear! Pretty funny though&hellip;</p>

<p>That&rsquo;s what my mother uses it for, certainly- and my father has been installing alarms for over 30 years, so we always had an alarm growing up. They even have different chimes for the front and back doors.</p>
